Re: Importance of a lightweight kite for non-foiling

Don't think landkiting is a a possibility in Austria. Snowkiting is, but the season for that is pretty much over. As I said, I will probably never kite below 12knt, just makes zero sense for me right now because I don't want to foil. I love the feeling on a twintip, beeing close to the water, so the...

Re: Importance of a lightweight kite for non-foiling

I've always found that when the kite has enough power for me (145 lbs) to ride, the kite will stay in the air and fly just fine. That's exactly what my initial idea was.

Importance of a lightweight kite for non-foiling

Hey, I am thinking about getting my first kite, pretty sealed on a 12m (9 and 12 are the most common kites at my local lake). The one question left is WHICH kite to get. I lean towards the Switch Element, but some people in a chat heavily unsettled me about that, saying that since I aim to go kiting...

Re: Duotone Mono 2019

Nice, how this big vendors "reinvent everything from scratch" every single season. God, what would be possible if they actually built on top of the stuff they learned from previous models instead ;-) Getting serious, can only comment on the design because of my limited knowledge (also I don't know h...
